NEW YORK (AP) - An eight-part television series documenting the
rise and fall of quarterback Michael Vick will debut on BET next
Tentatively titled "The Michael Vick Project," it also shows
attempts to redeem himself after serving an 18-month prison
sentence for operating a dogfighting ring.
BET says in a release Friday that the series will "give viewers
an unfiltered and personal experience of Vick" that is "both
serious in tone and nature."
Vick says he began filming the show with his own crew before BET
got involved, chronicling his time in prison and bankruptcy case.
Vick says he doesn't expect to film during the NFL season, but the
reality TV-style series could resume next year.
Vick debuted for Philadelphia this season after a two-game suspension.
